The Generations Unmasked!
Can Millennials ever show up on time? Why are Boomers so adverse to change? Our youngest employees won’t even pick up the phone! Our staff wants to work on their terms. Generational conflict and misunder-
standing has been present for decades, however the divide between each generation seems to get further apart. The Generations Unmasked identifies key influences, traits and characteristics of the predominant
generations in the workforce, but more importantly strategies to help understand what makes each age cohort succeed and engage. No matter which generation you fit into, this session will be relevant, entertaining and help you better understand your coworkers and individuals throughout your life.

"I attended Brad Gingras’s Interpersonal Communication Skills course to learn how I could improve the effectiveness of our conservation outreach. The class was engaging, educational, and went by very quickly. I highly recommend utilizing Brad as a speaker for your next organizational gathering.

Kids these days! A timeless statement, but for educators and employers alike, GenZ is bringing a new set of desires, needs, and issues into the classroom and workplace.

The 5 C's Transforming the Workforce
This isn’t your father’s workforce anymore! Many industries can’t find enough help, people are tired, workers are demanding new flexibilities, young adults are grossly unprepared and the Boomers that are still working aren’t too interested in adapting to change. The Five C’s outlines how each generation views or prefers to work while identifying trends that are shaking up the workforce: communication, change, choice, culture (including workforce culture) and centered (individualistic) preferences. We will make sense of why and how these changes are occuring and where the world of work is headed.
